Natalia Barbosa Dutra is currently an intern for the spring semester. She was born in Marietta, Georgia after her parents immigrated from Recife, Pernambuco in Brasil. While much of her early life was spent in Marietta, she later moved to Kennesaw.

After high school, Natalia decided to pursue higher education at Georgia State University. She is currently majoring in Political Science with a concentration in Pre-Law and a minor in Spanish. After completing her bachelor’s degree, she plans on pursuing a master’s and applying for law school in succession.

With a strong interest in politics, Natalia hopes that this internship will provide more knowledge of the legislative process and how to better serve the Latino community. Being trilingual, she also hopes that this internship will increase her confidence when utilizing Spanish.
